Wine Enthusiast Henri Bourgeois, 2013 Bourgeois Sancerre 'Jadis'
"This superb unfiltered wine comes from some of the steepest slopes around the village of Chavignol. It is impressively dense and concentrated with layers of tight fruitiness, a strongly mineral texture and bone-dry acidity. It is a wine for aging several years. Drink from 2018." –February 2016, Roger Voss
This cuvée comes from soils of kimmeridgian marls, recognizable for clusters of comma shaped small fossilized oyster shells (ostrea virgula) from the slopes of Chavignol.
After pressing, the juice is allowed 2 days of natural clarification by sedimentation. Fermentation occurs in both barrel and tank for complexity. The wine is racked and bottled in accordance with the lunar cycle.
